Open Call for Canvas
OBSCURED REINTRODUCES: CANVAS
Canvas is a curated page dedicated to original artwork based on a theme. Our next theme, in line with our upcoming issue – Wander.
Wander will showcase art, events and creative projects that relate, re-tell and encapsulate aspects of travel.
Wander goes beyond the mere physical act of going overseas. It has to do with a journey, being on the road and exploring the unknown. We want to know about where you've been and who you've become on the way there. We want to hear about the journey as much as the destination.
The physical aspect of travel is, for me, the least interesting; what really draws me is the prospect of stepping out of the daylight of everything I know, into the shadows of what I don't know, and may never know. Confronted by the foreign, we grow newly attentive to the details of the world, even as we make out, sometimes, the larger outline that lies behind them. – Pico Iyer
Some examples of work we are looking for: reflections and photo essays from off the beaten track, journeys you have undertaken which have taught you meaningful lessons, songs about being on the road, musings about traveling together or alone.
To submit or suggest original work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 December!
